Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus are back in this gripping mystery involving a secret cabal of some of Los Angeles’ most wealthy - and vicious - teens.
LAPD lieutenant detective Decker and his wife, Rina, have willingly welcomed fifteen-year-old Gabriel Whitman into their home. While the enigmatic teen seems to be adapting easily, Decker knows only too well the secrets adolescents keep - witnessed by the tragic suicide of another teen, Gregory Hesse, a student at Bell and Wakefield, one of the city’s most exclusive prep schools.
Gregory’s mother refuses to believe her son shot himself and convinces Decker to look deeper. What he finds disturbs him. The gun used in the tragedy was stolen - evidence that propels him to launch a full investigation. But the case becomes darkly complicated by the suicide of another Bell and Wakefield student - a death that leads them to uncover an especially nasty group of rich and privileged students with a predilection for guns and violence.
Before it’s over, the case and all its terrifying ramifications will take Decker and his detectives down a dark alley of twisted allegiances and unholy alliances, culminating into a heart-stopping point of no return.

Least favorite Faye Kellerman story ever! Skip it.
Yes, but not based on this story. I have read all her other Detective Decker books.
The dialog between Jasmine and Gabe was boring, uninteresting, unbelievable and for the most part, irrelevant to the story which dragged.
Gabe, when not with Jasmine.
This story reminded me more of a teen book except for some of the more explicit descriptions near the end which I would not recommend to teen readers. The story did not grab me and if I had been reading it, I would not have finished it at all.
Yes, Chris is back
